Titan TTI526COM 18V 1.3Ah Li-Ion Cordless Combi Drill
Titan 18Volt combi-Drill
Wow this is an amazing little drill, lightweight and it out performs my old 24 volt battery hammer drill, which it was purchased to replace after it failed for no particular reason.
two days after the 3 year guarantee ran out.
The Titan drilled 430 holes through 1 inch thick pine with a 3.5 mm drill bit and then screwed in 430 - 10 X 2 inch screws on one battery. I was building a fence from scratch.
it has a dual power switch on the top that governs how much torque you need, position 1 is low torque and high speed for drilling and position 2 is high torque and low speed for driving screws, I haven't used the Hammer function yet. the speed is still variable via the trigger in all torque ranges.
My first battery drill was 18volts and it was easily the best I ever had with NiCad batteries lasting all day long, somehow 18volts seems to be the optimum amount of power for longevity from batteries or perhaps it is the smaller motor drawing less amps.
The charger is nice and easy to understand red and green lights both on when charging red only when charged which takes about an hour. Don't forget to pre-charge it when you buy it the cells will have some charge in them so the initial charge may take less time.
Two batteries are always handy and lithium cells are always ready for use instead of discharging like the old NiCad's, Lithium does loose some capacity over night but not as much as NiCad's do.
overall a very nice drill for the money with a two year warranty, my only gripe would be that the very sturdy box with its metal catches could do with somewhere to store some bits.
Titan seem to be building a very good reputation amongst the trade in a lot of their products, we have purchased other Titan products including a petrol strimmer, and found them all, to be very reliable thus far.

I could probably easily do with a single battery version as all I need is to be able to do simple fixing jobs about once / month.
My old drill was NiCad and was always flat when I came to it. L-ion will hopefully overcome this.
It hammer drills easily into cellular block walls and is very easy to regulate chuck speed for driving screws.
It is light and well balanced. I would imagine that unless you are a pro, drilling lots of holes, every day, then this excellent piece of kit in its own sturdy box, is probable all the tool that you need.
I am very impressed and a friend is going to get one having seen this. Anything NiCad is dead technology now.
